PassiveLogic Wins 2024 Artificial Intelligence Breakthrough Award

Prestigious International Annual Awards Program Honors Standout AI and Machine Learning Solutions and Companies

LOS ANGELES, Calif., - June 26, 2024 – AI Breakthrough, a leading market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies, technologies and products in the global Artificial Intelligence (AI) market, today announced that PassiveLogic, creator of the first platform for autonomous buildings, has been selected as winner of the “Best AI-based Solution for Real Estate” award in the seventh annual AI Breakthrough Awards program.

PassiveLogic has built the first platform that enables users to build custom physics-based AI digital twin models of their building and its systems to enable autonomous control. PassiveLogic’s Hive Autonomous Platform targets the largest robotics market in the world: infrastructural robotics.

The breakthrough Hive Platform is a first of its kind autonomous management system (AMS), and provides the brain for all of a building’s systems. It’s an easy-to-install, pre-manufactured modular control system that connects to all sensors and controllables in a building including HVAC, energy systems, and asset management. The Hive has a secure, industrial-grade touchscreen that slides up and out of the way when transitioning to install mode and giving technicians I/O access and intelligent, on-screen AI-guided wiring.

The Hive Autonomous Platform is built on Quantum, the first composable AI language for AI models. Quantum goes beyond generative AI to create custom deep-learning models at run time—without a training period. These generative models provide a framework that power autonomous control for any application. For the first time, users can create their own actionable AI systems that power global infrastructure.

“An important aspect of our platform was to ensure it could scale from the smallest coffee shops to industrial facilities, up to the most complex skyscrapers; we wanted to guarantee accessible and advanced building automation to all segments of the market, democratizing AI in the built environment,” said CEO and Founder Troy Harvey. “Receiving recognition at this level corroborates both the work our team is doing and the market’s desire to better building control installation and management. We’ll continue to develop solutions that harness the power of AI to deliver integrated tools that address the inefficiencies in energy consumption and control complexity. This will pave the way for smarter, more sustainable buildings and address the greatest opportunity for carbon reduction in our energy economy.”

The Hive is installable in both new construction and retrofit projects and can deploy as a purely PassiveLogic system, or work with existing controls in various scenarios. PassiveLogic has embedded NVIDA processors into each Hive controller to provide secure, private autonomous decision making at the edge. For larger projects, additional Hives can be installed, either connected wirelessly or via ethernet, thus increasing the compute capacity.

“PassiveLogic isn't just changing how buildings are managed; they’re redefining what's possible for AI in real estate. Buildings are responsible for 40% of the world's energy consumption, with much of this energy wasted due to inefficiencies. As skyscrapers trend toward millions of sensors and control points, manual programming becomes a huge problem,” said Steve Johansson, managing director, AI Breakthrough. “PassiveLogic stands at the forefront of this challenge with an introspectable and composable AI framework that sets new standards in building automation. We’re proud to award them with ‘Best AI-based Solution for Real Estate’!”

The mission of the AI Breakthrough Awards is to honor excellence and recognize the innovation, hard work, and success in a range of AI and machine learning related categories, including Generative AI, Computer Vision, AIOps, Deep Learning, Robotics, Natural Language Processing, industry-specific AI applications and many more. This year’s program attracted more than 5,000 nominations from over 20 different countries throughout the world.
